If you are pursuing a better life at home or in business, this book is absolutely invaluable. I loved it for it's clear and concise message about what the world-class do that differentiates them, and the results they get, from the rest. It is also great to be able to open the book anywhere and get clear and profound methodology into the workings of world-class performers, without having to read the book from the beginning.

And the author is very magnanimous in providing countless referrals to other books, CD's and even movies that help the reader get further understanding and systems on how and why the elite perform better in the world.

An easy read, and very motivational, this book has changed my whole life, and my business.

Format: Paperback
What I love about this book by Steve Siebold is - it's a perfect ROADMAP for "correct thinking" to gain a better life.

It is a "no holes barred" approach to developing a laser focus on the right 'mindset' for success, prosperity and happiness.

Every person who aspires to higher levels of accomplishment, fulfillment and leadership development needs this book as a companion.

TOUGH TIMES - As this is written, we're witnessing a grim (global) economy, and we hear nothing but "negative" on TV, in the newspapers, everywhere. People are worried about the health of their savings / investments / homes / retirements / careers.

In my profession, as a Financial Advisor, Business Consultant and Coach - I see people "hungry" for advice and good information on how to achieve more financial security and success in their lives - how to 'get control' of their finances and their businesses.

They go to seminars - they hire financial and business counselors like me - they buy books / courses / 'how to' programs. They can't seem to find the right 'prescription' for financial wellness, and instead, they struggle with the major challenges, roadblocks and setbacks that life throws at them.

MISSING ELEMENT - Quite frankly, I believe that much of this pain and frustration is caused by that "little voice inside of us" - whispering that we're not worthy, or that we can't find that new job, or that we will never reach success, or that we are failures, etc., etc. - words of lack and scarcity - of low expectations - of discouragement - words that can diminish our self-esteem and keep us from a more abundant life.

Each chapter is a page long. At first blush, it wouldn't seem like there would be a lot of "substance". Between the clear concise messages and the exercises at the end of each chapter make this book a great buy.

A millionaire friend of mine suggested this book to me if I wanted to increase my success in not only in Business but also in life. After reading the book and making the appropriate changes, people started to notice me a little different. Recommend for anyone who want to positively change their life.

It was Michael Jackson who coined the phrase, "If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make the change." This book does exactly that; it forces you to look at yourself, compared to world-class performers. Honestly, this book is painful because it caused me to examine a lot of bad habits I have. It caused me to look at life in a totally different way. I have noticed some drastic changes in my life since reading this book and in applying its principles. If you want to remain status-quo and average, then this is not the book for you. However, if you are frustrated with your current results, I would advise you to get a copy ASAP. WARNING!!!! This book will cause you to experience some emotional pain!! LOL
